The Italian National School of Administration (SNA)

The Italian National School of Administration is an institution of higher education and research supervised by the Presidency of the Council of Ministers. Since its inception in 1957, its main task has been to select managers from/for the Public Administration and to attend to their training needs. The training courses provided by the SNA cover the civil servants' entire career cycle.

By encompassing research, training and knowledge sharing, the SNA is determined to establish its facilities as a centre of excellence. It aims at shaping the debate on a national and international level on the strategic issues concerning public sector reform and challenges of public administration. It focuses on seven strategic areas: Reform of Civil Service and Public Management; Technological Innovation and e-Government; Public Finance; Fiscal Federalism; Public Procurement and European Affairs. Through national and international experiences the SNA aims at exchanging know-how and training experience across the world.


Governance Programme

The Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development is an International organisation of 34 member countries founded in 1961 to promote policies that improve the economic and social well-being of people around the world. The OECD provides a forum in which governments can work together to share experiences and seek solutions to common problems.

The Organisation has been working intensively with the MENA region through the MENA-OECD Initiative on Governance and Investment for Development since 2005. In particular, the MENA-OECD Governance Programme supports progress with governance reform that matters for achieving global social and economic development objectives. The Programme is directed towards helping all interested MENA countries strengthen their capacity to govern by improving policy-making systems and the performance of public institutions and by enhancing their efficiency, transparency and accountability and the interaction between public and private sectors as well as governments and their citizens.
